The future of group builds?

Recommended Posts

For me, GBs in the summer don’t work. Too many outdoor activities take my available free time. 

 

I am looking forward to the Topgun GB. The one GB that I thoroughly enjoyed participating in was the Bad Boys. I like the RM GB suggestion. 

 

I hope these suggestions for GB take hold and bring back the participation they once had. I do like the suggestions about reducing the number to get a GB approved and moving the GB section to the top.

We wait for Neo or Phantom to see the thread. I believe we still have to vote on which GB we want. I agree with most for a Revell Memorial Build. It seems to interest the most builders. :woot.gif:

I was going through my stash in anticipation of a home move coming later this year, and I've got more Revell/Monogram than I remember

 

AV-8A
A-26C

Su-25
F-84G
F-84F
F-106
F-5F
and the sublime 1/72 scale F-105

Right, I'll host a Revell/ Monogram . See if we can get our collective mojos back.

 

Say, normal 6 months.

Everything Revell/ Monogram.

Aftermarket is ok.

 

Lets say starting  August 1.( Mostly as I have 6, 12 shifts between now and then and a camping trip up north.)

 

Not giving out prizes unless someone wants to donate them.

 

Anyone wish to assist? If not I can do it myself. Hosting a GB is not hard. You just have to show up once in a while. (at least once or twice a week.)

As of now all I know I have is a 1/32 CH-118 Iroquois. (UH-1D) nice and simple but I am sure I can find something else.

Phantom,

A camping trip up north for you would be the Arctic circle. :clap2:

If you're hosting the GB I'm in. I'm not sure what yet but I will find something in the stash. :hmmm:

I'm in with a Revell ship kit possibly two. Definitely the circa 1959 1/426 USS Arizona as she was fitted out sometime in 1938-1940 before Pearl Harbor (which is how the kit is OOB). If that goes off well then perhaps  either a Revell circa 1953 1/535 USS Missouri as she was seen sometime during her World War II service or a Monogram or Revell 1/720 aircraft carrier (no idea which one as I don't have any...yet :rolleyes:).  Builds will be straight OOB with the exception of drilled out portholes (for the Arizona), EZ-Line rigging, possibly aftermarket decals/flags, and a new display base.

 

Honestly, with the plethora of Monogram and Revell kits out there for aircraft/helos, ships, cars/trucks, space, Sci-Fi/movie monster, armor, figures...etc this GB should appeal to a large ARC audience.

 

Regards.

Been reading along with this thread in the hopes of getting the mojo started back up.   I really like the Revell Monogram theme.   Would rescuing and rebuilding a glue bomb be allowed?   I have a Monogram USS Halsey that is begging to be striped down and rebuilt.

Looking forward to it. How many builds do you have planned?

Funny you should ask. I just looked. A couple Voodoos, A Phantom (of course) a Iroquois in 1/32,  Starfighter !/32, and Maybe a 1/32 Phantom E if I can find the right decals. But in between the first and second build I have to knock out a (Hasegawa) commission build that I want to take more time on.

Nice. I was just reading the Monogram GB thread and it seemed August 1 was the start date. Now, should I participate or not? On the road 18 days per month, moving in November.... seems a little tight for me.

Yeah man. Build something simple. The classic and still great Revell Bf-109G, or Mongram's T-6 or P-47, or the F-4C.

 

And even if you don't finish, who cares? Come start a project, share some pics, BS around with others on their threads. Just come have some fun.
